I haven't played golf or even picked up a golf club,except when my wife,daughter and I moved to San Pedro two years ago. I tweeked my elbow when I was on the practice tee about three years ago and just recently tweeked my knee lifting my daughter from the bed to her wheelchair. My elbow is better now,but my knee is still healing. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to playing golf soon.

just got back from playing the riverside course at green river (again)
shot a 85. 40 on the front nine, possibly the best nine holes of my life. shot 45 on the back nine, and would have been better had i not tripled 14.

The Orange Course has its first 3 holes parallel to the 91.

Started off good with 2 pars, and then the front became an all out cluster ****. I couldn't hit a fairway to save my life. It was my worst day driving in a LONG time. Doubled 4 of the last 7, and threw in a bogey for good measure. Front was a 45.
On to the back, where I STILL couldn't find a fairway. However, I was able to recover well and hit some pretty damn good chips and really good putts. Had one bogey and one double, to shoot a 39 on the back.
So, I hit 4 fairways and maybe a few more greens. However, I was able to putt. I took 28 putts, which allowed me to score quite well. 11 pars, 2 bogeys, and 5 doubles.
Trend Index is now sitting at 11.0. If the SCGA gets this score in time for the September run (not likely), then my index would fall from 12.1 to 11.0 in one month. Amazing what 5 good rounds can do to an index. EDIT - Just checked the SCGA web site. They have already pulled off August's scores. So no 11.0 for me.

Nice track. Been there a few times, and haven't much of a problem getting around. For the most part, the course is there for the taking. Nothing too tricky.

#3 - SHORT Par 3.
#4 - SHORT Par 5. Take your driver, and try to hit it about 280 yards. You want to be just short of the water. Look for the black and white pole for your target. Should be an easy mid iron in. I am not a long hitter, and I was on in 2 with a driver and a 5 iron. Distance of the hole is measured in the fairway, but the shot over the water is pretty easy. Check the wind (usually down wind) and try to see if they recently cut the crap around the water. It may roll in.
#'s 5 - 10. Can't really remember.
#11 - Par 3. Make sure you are on the correct level of the green. It is a HUGE two tier green. If the pin is red (front), get it on the bottom left. If it is white, try to see if it on the top or bottom.
#12 - Par 4. Just a carry of about 225 or so. More space on the right.
#14 - Par 5. My mental nemesis. Easy par 5, yet I always **** it up. Take a three or 5 wood off the tee, and go no more than 220 or so. The rest of the hole is downhill, with the 2nd shot across the ravine.
#17 - Tough uphill par 4, usually into the wind.
#18 - Should be a reachable in 2 par 5. It is downhill, and usually down wind. If you go for it in 2, you are going to have to carry the water.
General comment - The greens are usually in good condition. However, pay attention to the surrounding hills. Putts that look like they break one way may actually break the other.

well, just shot an embarrassing 95 at westridge. if i stay out of the bunker it would have been 90.
started off with three straight double-bogeys, parred four then double, triple, then double. then i remembered i didnt have my good luck charm in my pocket(a plastic bugs bunny) and things got a little better.
parred 8, 9 and 10.
13 kicked my ass. shot a 7 on the par 4. great tee shot,decent approach, then bunker and the green killed me. ugh
parred 14 actually. didnt try to do too much, just layed up before the ravine with the 3 iron, 3 iron towards the green, then up and in. it the couple my dad and i were paired with alive and they play there every week.
triple bogey on the par 3 15th. all mental.
300 yard drive on 18(granted its downhill) but the problem with that hole is it doesnt really matter how far your drive is, youre still most likely going to have to lay up. laid up, then went one club too many then hit my approach over the green into the setup for a wedding while dudes were trying to set the chairs up. oops. decent chip shot, and a bogey.
my game is ok, i just have mental breakdowns that last a few holes. if i can control that im ok.
